A Poem On Metaphor

The key with metaphors is not
To introduce it like a simile.


Just describe something,
Making it mean something else.

Not sure?

It’s ok. I’ll do it for you:
The waves splashed without end onto the paddle.

Not sure?

That’s because it’s a metaphor and you’re happy now
Roaming a sea of thought.

The metaphors continue,
Unlike a simile.


Sometimes a sunset is just a sunset.  Other times, it’s foreplay.
